I sold my Traktor Kontrol S4 a few months back due to lack of use. I think it was a mixture of the controller and Traktor being a bit too overwhelming for me to dedicate time to it. Therefore, I am now looking for a much simpler, more streamlined setup.
I want controller that I can mix live with, something I could play at venues with ideally. However, I want something cheap just in case I don't get on with it again. Having looked at Serato vs Traktor, I think I am leaning more towards Serato due to it looking more basic, straightforward yet still having everything to mix wewll live.
Ideally I want 4 channels, but 2 will do just fine and some effects control is desirable too. In terms of jog wheels, I am a bit of a sync junkie (sorry!) but happy to use jogs if need be (I came from vinyl World so it is not down to inability to mix).
Anyway, recommend me a controller that fits the above and the cheaper the better. I tend to prefer to mix house and electro house music, maybe with some kooky ones in there or mashups (think the kind of music and stuff the likes of Knife Party, 2 Many DJs, Thomas Bangalter etc mix).
